A customer at Hawksmoor steak house in Manchester was given a costly 2001 bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol rather than the much cheaper Chateau Pichon Longueville Contesse de Lalande, which they actually ordered.

The steakhouse shared the mistake on Twitter but insisted the waiter should ''keep their chin up'' and acknowledged that ''mistakes happen''.

The restaurant wrote: ''To the customer who accidentally got given a bottle of Chateau le Pin Pomerol 2001, which is £4,500 on our menu, last night - hope you enjoyed your evening! To the member of staff who accidentally gave ti away, keep your chin up! One-off mistakes happen we love you anyway (Sic)''
